XSNOED is a graphical display tool used to view live SNO events from the dispatcher, or stored events from ZDAB or ROOT files. It runs under X Windows using the Motif widget set. Currently supported platforms are PC/Linux, Macintosh/OSX, Sun/Solaris (Sparc and x86), Alpha/OSF, HP-UX and VAX/VMS.
If you are running an X-Windows web browser and have it configured to use XSNOED as a helper application, you can click here or on the animated image to the right to run XSNOED and display an event. If this doesn't work for you, look at the section called XSNOED as a Helper Application for Netscape for instructions on configuring your X-Windows Netscape.

Note: XSNOED requires a number of support files to run. These files can be found in any of the above directories, and are included in the source code tar file.
|Syntax:||xsnoed [filename] [resources] [-dnps]
|filename||Name of ZDAB or ROOT (ROOT_FILE version only) file to be opened, or dispatcher address to be connected when XSNOED is started. ROOT files are recognized by the string "root" in the filename, otherwise a ZDAB file is assumed. If no matching file is found, <filename> is assumed to be a dispatcher address.|
|resources||Optional resource settings to override settings in the XSnoed resource file. See the section on the XSnoed resource file for more information about available resources.|
|-d#||Sets "Dump Record Info" flag to specified value (#): 0=off, 1=normal, 2=hex dump all but ZDAB records, 3=hex dump all including ZDAB records. The "#" is optional, and defaults to 1 if not specified (ie. "-d" is equivalent to "-d1").|
|-n||Do not load XSnoed settings from settings file.|
|-p||Starts XSNOED in protected mode (DEMO_VERSION only).|
|-s settings_file||Specifies name of settings file to use. This allows different people on the same account to have individual XSNOED preferences. If not specified, the default settings file name is "~/.XSnoed".|
|-R period||Rotates the XSNOED display with the specified period. Used for demonstration purposes.|
